Crunden, John (c.1741–1835). English architect. He is known for his pattern-books, one of which, Convenient and Ornamental Architecture, consisting of Original Designs (from) the Farm House … to the Most Grand and Magnificent Villa (1767), went into seven later editions, and was the most successful of its type, containing designs for a range of Palladianesque buildings. He collaborated with J. H. Morris to produce The Carpenter's Companion … for… Chinese Railing and Gates (1765), and also designed in the Gothick style, including a garden-pavilion illustrated in Krafft's Plans des plus beaux jardins pittoresques (1809). His architectural works are not numerous, but include Boodle's Club, St. James's Street, London (1775–6), which is influenced by the work of Robert Adam. His own pattern-books were influential, notably in America.
